She sung for Veteran's Day, Major Events, including the Philadelphia 76ers, Camden Riversharks and the past 3 Governor's Inaugurations Ceremonies and many others.

Over the years, Chelsea has had the honor and privilege of getting to know many others, adults and children battling cancer. ￼Chelsea’s last song track 10 - “SOMEDAY,”, emotes and delivers a powerful message about losing someone close to you and holding on the the faith of seeing them again someday.

While waiting on stage for the final cut from Simon, Chelsea stated, “I had an overwhelming presence from God letting me know that I wouldn't move forward.” Chelsea stated, “At that moment, I knew God had bigger plans for me. I was not upset when I was cut, instead I smiled, then I wiped the tears from the other X-Factor hopefuls that were crying when they were cut. I think they wanted me to cry but I wasn’t sad, I was actually happy and relieved. I wanted to really record this CD that I have been writing for the past year. I have a mission and positive message I want to spread."
￼ ￼Chelsea quickly moved forward, she set her goals to record the songs she wrote and completed the new CD titled PERFECTLY YOU.

These songs are going to be an instrument to help talk about purity, anti-bullying, faith, going for their dreams and many more topics of today. Today, the music industry is made up of many types of Artist. People are becoming outraged about how of the musicians of today start out “pure and clean” only to see down the line they are posing for magazines in seductive clothing or worse. When confronted on this issue in main stream music and TV, Chelsea politely stated in a pleasant but firm tone, “I would NEVER do that. I am true to who I am and I won’t change. I have been approached over the years, to sign multiple contracts to music labels, managers, producers and others. It was written and offered in contract that I don’t have the right to control my image, they(labels, manager, etc) would choose the music, style my wardrobe, and told me NOT to wear my purity ring. I will not sign a contract like that, I will not sell out!” ￼
￼￼Now, staying true to her calling, the the CD is complete. Chelsea would like to be able to go into churches, youth groups, schools, festival, fairs...and other events. Chelsea states, “I want to discuss and dig deep about today's challenges. I want to be a mentor, a friend, and someone that can relate and connect with about issues of today.” Chelsea with all that under her belt still remains humble and grateful for the opportunities she has been given throughout the years.
